Arthur BURGIN of New Cross, Surrey. Lighterman.
Maud Mary BURGIN, wife of Arthur Burgin.
The document concerns a dwellinghouse known as number 26 Mayall Road, Brixton, in the Parish of St Marys, Lambeth. We are told that Sarah Margaret Burgin acquired a 99 year lease on this property in 1869 at the yearly rent of £6 per annum.
Sarah Burgin died in 1894, intestate, and the property passed to Arthur Burgin. He tried to sell the residue of the lease at Auction but the highest bid obtained was £200. Evidently, he was not satisfied with this price, and instead is selling it to his wife Maud Burgin for £250.
